A trio of terrific reads for November

The long awaited sequel

to A Handmaid’s Tale

In A Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret

Atwood envisioned a world in which

the US had become Gilead, a totalitarian

world ruled by Commanders

in which women were totally subservient.

Told by one handmaid, Offred,

it describes how women are forbidden

to learn to read or write and are

solely there to serve men in all ways,

including sexually. The sequel, The

Testaments, is set 15 years later and

is told by three women – Aunt Lydia,

a trainer and manager of handmaids,

and two of Offred’s daughters,

Agnes, who became the privileged

child of an elite family, and Nicola,

who was smuggled out to Canada.

Resistance is growing in Gilead and

Lydia is plotting its downfall... At a

time when women are increasingly

protesting against femicide, rape,

unequal pay and often worse injustices

at the hands of men, this book

hits an extremely sensitive nerve.

Chatto & Windus, R360.

Secrets. Affairs. Revenge.

It’s all going on in the

suburbs ... where everyone

has something to hide

Shari Lapena’s Someone We Know

is set in a small suburb, where

everyone is polite and friendly and

neighbourly. When newcomers arrive

in town – a handsome man and

his extraordinarily attractive wife –

the main conversation appears to be

how much of a flirt she is with the

men in the area. Then she’s found

murdered, and more than one man

is ‘a person of interest’ to the police.

At the same time, a family’s teenage

son has been breaking into some

of the houses ... not to steal, but to

practise his fairly impressive computer

hacking skills. With secrets and

affairs and revenge, Lapena keeps

you guessing until the very end.

Penguin, R290.

Chosen as one of the best

thrillers of summer, this

legal thriller is exceptional

They were a perfectly ordinary family.

Interesting jobs. Yoga, basketball

and trips to the library. Takeout on

Fridays in front of the telly and a

bottle of wine with their friends.

Until the murder. Chosen as one

of the best thrillers of the summer

by the New York Times, A Nearly

Normal Family is M. T. Edvardsson’s

psychological, legal thriller that asks

what would you do if your daughter

was suspected of murder? How far

would you go to protect her? Would

you believe her, or the evidence

against her? The father believes

his daughter has been framed. The

mother believes she’s hiding something.

And the daughter believes

they have no idea what she’s truly

capable of. Could. Not. Put it down!

Brilliant. Macmallan, R299.

Wish list

Make the most of the blue skies ...

Prohibition Blue Gin ...

coming to a cocktail

near you

It’s not just the blue we fancy in

the newly released Prohibition

Blue Gin. It’s also the way that

with certain mixers, it changes

to pink. Magic gin! So if you’re

in the mood for a pink drink, a

dash of tonic water or lemon

changes the PH balance and

the blue changes to a sparkling

pink. This Silver Creek Craft

Distillery gin gets its striking

blue colour from the flower

of the Blue Pea (so it’s 100 per

cent natural) and is infused with

juniper as well as coriander,

lemon, angelica, cinnamon and

a dash of rose water. Try it in

your fave cocktail … or spruce

it up with apples and thyme

(delish!). You can buy it for R369

online at Takealot.com and in

major bottle stores. Oh … a

little extra info … in traditional

medicine, the Blue Pea flower –

Clitoria Tetnatea – is said to have

aphrodisiac and antioxidant

powers, among other lifeenhancing

properties. Details:

www.silvercreekdistillery.co.za.

You can certainly complete your sassy look with these uber

chic wood painted earrings from LumainKie (based

in Randfontein but courier is an option). In addition

to being stylish, these handmade earrings are

lightweight and so comfy. Get them R85. Oh …

and they can

make a great gift as well! Details:

Ice cream anyone?

If the answer’s ‘Yes, yes, yes!’ then grab

a copy of Jude’s Ice Cream & Desserts.

From simple, refreshing treats (orange

lollies) and sorbets like mango and

passion fruit or summer peach, to

fluffy buttermilk pancakes with

roasted apple, toasted oats and

ice cream, there’s a temptation

on every page – dig in and enjoy!

The many ice cream variations

(Earl Grey; beetroot and ginger

– yes, really!) include several for

vegans, but it’s the desserts we

fancy most. How about cinnamon

pavlova with winter fruit; Julia’s double

chocolate brownies or, by far our fave

... collapsed espresso chocolate cake

served with ice cream. Yes, yes, yes!

From shakes and smoothies to sauces

and DIY cones, when deliciousness

calls, this is the book you need.

Kyle Books, R378.

We’re sweet on Skyline Late Harvest

The just-released Skyline

it’s full-bodied and rich and

decided to make beautiful clothes together, starting with a fab range

of scarves. A lot of attention is given to every scarf and because of the

uniqueness of their scarves, they only make a limited number of each

design. And the best part …? Every scarf is also adorned with a powerful

verse or message and they specifically pray for each person who will wear

the scarf. You can buy them at Op-ge-tof Coffee Shop, 72 Homestead

BEING REAL

Pinehaven's Danielle Steynvaardt, owner of TA-DA! Theatre Arts and Drama Academy,

certainly knows how to make lemonade when life hands her lemons. This 29-year-old

beauty spills the beans on the entertainment industry, love and all things art.

Text: JACO-MARI HAASBROEK. Photographer: JACO BOTHMA. Hair: Tarryn Eksteen. Make-up: ANTOINETTE DE BEER. -

Iam a singer, musician,

and actress and I'm

currently studying to

become a pastor, but

my ultimate life goal is

to help others through

everything I do. I believe

that God has sent many

ups and downs my way so that I

could grow as a person and help

others by teaching them what I’ve

learned, equipping them to handle

everything life throws at them. I

have to put food on the table, so

I’m always busy with my business

or some new project, but I use all of

that to help people – that’s the best

part of my career.

I have always been in love with

singing and later discovered my

talent for acting. Coming from

a family where everybody has

corporate jobs, it was quite a shock

to the family when I said I wanted

to study drama. My father asked me

to draw up a business plan to show

him how I would earn a steady

income while pursuing this dream

of mine, and that’s how TA-DA! got

started in 2011.

Early in my career, I starred

in shows like Muvhango,

Binnelanders and Getroud met

Rugby, but fame has never been

a driving force for me. I want to

work in the entertainment industry

because it’s what I love, not to chase

fame, because there will always

be someone better or richer than

you. TA-DA! is is an academy where

people can chase their dreams; we

prepare young people to step into

the industry, fully equipped. TA-DA!

specialises in acting, vocals, and

dancing and I try my best to create

amazing opportunities for my

14 Get It Joburg West November 2019


students so that one day they can be

even more accomplished than I am.

Sometimes I think that I bite off

more than I can chew, but God is

my inspiration and motivation. You

get a lot of rejection and criticism in

this industry, but I know that God has

a plan for me. The one thing I pray for

every day is to have less of me and

more of Him. Whatever happens in my

life, God will help me reach my goals.

We women tend to try and take care

of everyone and everything around us,

but we also need someone to care for

us, and that’s what God does for me.

One of the biggest struggles I

have faced in my personal life is

infertility, but God is helping me

through it. My husband and I have

been struggling to conceive for

eight years and I’ve been hard on

myself because it’s the one thing in

my life that I can't control. I still get

very emotional about it but I have

accepted that God has another big

plan for me. I had to realise that our

love and our marriage are enough. It

gets especially hard when people ask

us why we don’t have kids. Most of

the time they assume we don’t want

kids but we have to smile through the

tears because we are looking at the

bigger picture.

Fortunately, I have a big family and

my siblings’ children are like my

own. When my husband and I get

lonely, we invite the kids over for a day

of fun. Our whole family is very close

and we meet up for a big family meal

at least once a month. I’m also very

close to my mother and can’t go a day

without seeing her. When I’m down,

she lifts me up, and when I’m excited,

she is happy with me.

Through it all, my husband is my

rock and my biggest supporter.

Before we fell in love, he was one

of my brother’s friends, so I didn’t

pay him much attention. I used to

introduce myself all over every time

he came over! After I got out of a very

bad relationship, I saw what had been

right in front of my eyes the whole

time and found myself falling head

over heels in love with my brother’s

best friend.

We have come a long way and I’ve

learned so much from my husband –

most importantly, how to prioritise.

I’m a go-getter and when something

doesn't work out, I tend to get very

disappointed. Always being in control

is both my strength and my weakness.

By prioritising, I learned that not

everything is equally important and

that it's okay if something fails. In

my life, I put God first, my husband

second, and then everything else. Your

whole world doesn’t have to revolve

around your husband, but you weren’t

put on this earth to be alone.

We have gone through a rough

patch lately but giving up and

throwing it all away isn’t an option.

My husband and I had to take another

look at our relationship and realise

where both of us had gone wrong.

Now we have to pray and trust that

There will

always be

someone better

or richer

than you.

God will help us get our marriage back

on track. As long as we still have our

love for each other, everything will

work out as it should.

It’s a terrible feeling when

something goes wrong in your

marriage, but no one is perfect.

We live in a world where everyone’s

relationships look perfect on

Instagram and

Facebook, but

we all have

issues we don’t

post about on

social media.

In November,

my husband

and I will be

launching

‘Behind The

Scenes – The

Marriage’

where we will

be producing

YouTube videos and podcasts about

everything in relationships that people

don’t talk about, like fighting, infertility,

sex and even the lack thereof. I

believe that we can save the world,

one marriage at a time, because if

your relationships with God and your

husband are healthy, everything else

will fall into place.

I’m also busy with a Master's

degree at Team Impact Christian

University, specialising in sex in

marriage, because I feel that no

one talks about sex. Not everyone

knows what’s sinful and what’s right or

wrong, but sex is the glue that keeps

a husband and wife together. I want

to help people realise how beautiful

sex in a marriage can be. Next year, I

will be speaking about this topic at

women’s conferences around South

Africa, putting the sex back into

marriages – the way it should be.

When I’m not busy with my studies

or my business, painting and

making music are my favourite

hobbies. I never watch TV; I’m either

painting, planning, playing piano

and ukulele or spending quality time

with my husband when I have a bit of

time off. There is always music playing

in our house, because I can’t stand

silence.

In the future, I hope to launch my

own fabulous clothing line as well.

When I was at university, I started a

small but successful clothing line as a

way to earn my own money. Making

my own clothes has always been a

dream of mine since I love fashion and

putting outfits together. I know I can

do whatever I set my mind to, because

God is helping me.

Constantia Kloof’s image consultant,

Nqobile Nkosi, is an expert on all things

fashion. She shares her tips for choosing

between a one-piece and a two-piece

swimsuit for your style and body type.

ONE-PIECE SWIMSUIT:

• Avoid a halterneck swimsuit if you

have a big bust, thereby preventing

sideways creep, and if you have big

arms, as these will be accentuated.

• A sweetheart neckline on a swimsuit

is perfect for making your neck look

long and elegant.

• If you have a bit of a fleshy tummy,

your best pick will be a swimsuit

with lots of small prints as this will


camouflage the bulge.

• A tailored swimsuit that flares over

the bottom will work very well if you

have a very big behind as it hides

and balances it and gives a lovely

feminine silhouette.

TWO-PIECE SWIMSUIT:

• Don’t go for a boob-tube swimsuit if

you have a very small bust – it could

end up looking like a bandage on

you. A halterneck top is the perfect

style for those with a small bust as

you can show off your shoulders

with the angular cut of the design.

• Frills and ruffles on the swimsuit are

perfect for covering a flatter chest,

but these designs should be avoided

if you have a fuller bust.

• Pick a swimsuit with a deep V or

wide scoop neckline if you have a

very short neck. This will make your

neck look longer and more elegant.

CANSA West Rand encourages everyone,

young and old, to reduce the risk of skin

cancer with the following tips:

• Stay out of the sun between 10am

and 3pm. Stay in the shade or under an

umbrella as much as possible.

• Wear protective clothing and thickly

woven fabric hats with wide brims.

• Avoid caps that leave the neck and

ears exposed.

• Wear sunglasses with a UV protection

rating of UV400.

• It’s important to know the best Sun

Protection Factor (SPF) for your skin type.

Use sunscreen with an SPF of between

20 and 50; preferably SPF 30 to 50 for fair

to very fair skin.

• Always apply sunscreen 20 minutes

before you go outside and reapply at

least every two to three hours.

• The CANSA’s Seal of Recognition (CSOR)

logo appears on approved sunscreen

products and is a guarantee that the

manufacturers of these UV protective

products have complied with the strict

HOME:

Want to zhoosh up your home this holiday? Go with blue – it is an allaround

crowd-pleaser, the VIP of the crayon box. A go-to hue, blue is easy

to decorate with and, more importantly, live in. From calming sky blue to

electrifying cobalt, there’s a blue hue that suits every style!

• Warm blues, like denim, ocean blue, or slate blue, contain hints of red.

Colour experts say they advance or come toward you, so they help

make a room feel cosier. Decorators often like warm blues in social

spaces, like the living room, the kitchen, or the dining room.

• Shades known as cool blues – like cobalt, turquoise, and ice blue

– have yellow in them and tend to recede, or back away, which can

help a small space look bigger. Colour experts explain that cool blues

encourage calmness (which is nice for a bedroom) and focus (say, in a

home office). Sometimes cool blues can go a little further and be cold.

But in a bathroom, where you want a crisp, clean vibe, that can be a

good thing.

her top tips for taking care of your pets

during the holidays.

• Whether you are going on holiday or

with their favourite food and toys.

• For birds, it’s advised to get extra

vitamins and something to calm them

down from the pet shop as they tend

to pluck their feathers when they

are stressed from not having their

favourite human around.

• If people are using fireworks in your

area, bring your pets inside and leave

the radio or television on for them so

that they won’t get as stressed about

the noise. If you

are at home and your animals are

stressed, use CalmEze calming tablets

or a calming collar available from your

vet or pet store.

• Whatever your plans are, make sure

your pets are chipped so that they can

be traced and that their inoculations

are up to date so that if they get lost,

they don’t contract diseases. But most

of all, give them love and attention –

it’s the festive season after all. Details:

What your pet-sitter needs to know:

Christien van den Bergh, a pet-sitter

from Randfontein, says that the most

important part of hiring a pet-sitter

for your four-legged children is to get

everything in writing. Before you go on

your well-deserved holiday, make a list

of your instructions so that the pet-sitter

can refer back to it whenever needed.

It is important to mention the

following things:

• Your pets’ feeding schedule as well as

where the bowls are kept.

• Where your pets’ medication is stored

and how often and what dosage must

be given. Remember to list all injuries

or conditions so that the pet-sitter

doesn’t get worried unnecessarily.

• Grooming instructions including

how often it is needed, and where the

shampoo, brushes, and accessories are

kept. Sometimes pets can make

TRAVEL:

Purrfect travel tips

Travelling comes with its fair share of

stressors, especially when you’re

tasked with packing a bag and

bringing along your closest fourlegged

friend.

1. Get your pet geared up

for a long trip by taking him

on a series of short drives

first, gradually lengthening

the time spent in the car.

2. Make sure your pet has a

microchip for identification and

wears a collar with a tag imprinted

with your home address, as well as

a temporary travel tag with your

cellphone number, destination phone

number and any other relevant

contact information.

3. It’s safest for everyone if cats ride

in a carrier and dogs in a car harness

or a crate, depending on what makes

them most comfortable.

4. Make regular stops – every two

hours for a puppy, every three to four

hours for a cat or an adult dog – so

your pet can take a walk on a leash.

5. Feed your pet only lightly before

getting in the car – pets can become

carsick. Once you’ve stopped driving

for the day, feed normally. Opt for

bottled water – drinking water from

an area he’s not used to could result in

a tummy upset for your pet.

a mess, so make sure your pet-sitter

knows where the cleaning supplies

are too.

• Let the pet-sitter know what spaces

are off-limits for the pets.

• List emergency details for the

veterinarian and a family member or

close friend that can be contacted

in case of an emergency. Please list

your details in case of an emergency

as well.

• It is wise to show the pet-sitter

where the circuit breakers are and

what to do when the power is off.

• Make provision in case your return

gets delayed – ensure there is a

supply of extra food, medicine and

anything else your pets might need.

• You should preferably put the

payment agreement in writing

to eliminate confusion and

miscommunication.

Kids’

entertainment:

Keep kids entertained

by downloading their

favourite movies and games

on a tablet. Remember to

carry a good book or some

puzzles to save the day

in case of a tech

meltdown.

Road trip essentials

Budget Car Hire put together a list of

essentials to gather before your journey

to ensure you and your loved ones are

safe, you don’t have to worry and can

focus on enjoying your adventures on

the open road.

Roadside emergency kit: Keep pliers

and spanners on hand. Have jumper

cables in your vehicle to revive a

dead battery. Make sure you have an

emergency triangle/ road flares, a tow

rope and a flashlight.

First-aid kit: A good kit should

contain bandages, band-aids for minor

cuts and bruises as well as stronger

ones to dress serious wounds. Also, be

sure to include hydrogen peroxide, an

emergency blanket, disposable gloves

and antiseptic cream.

Hardcopy maps: Have a map on

hand. It will keep you on the right

path in case your cellphone battery

dies, and you don’t have a charger,

you can’t

get a network signal, or your GPS

loses the plot.

Cooler and snacks: Beat the heat

with a cooler filled with snacks, water

and energy drinks. When travelling, it’s

important to keep food cold, as germs

thrive in warmer conditions. Keep

hydrated, because water is crucial for

all bodily functions, so you are at your

optimum. Snack on energy bars or trail

mix to keep the hunger pangs at bay.

The right fashion: Pack for the road,

not the runway. The last thing you

want on a road trip is to fuss with

uncomfortable clothes and shoes.

Breaking the

Anita Browne of Greenway Farms, Tarlton is one fab farmer. Meet the woman who

managed to win the AGRI Gauteng Young Farmer of the Year in between running the

family business and expanding her own little family.

Text & image: JACO-MARI HAASBROEK.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WORKING AT

GREENWAY FARMS?

My Father and his business partner founded the business

in 1988. I grew up on the farm, but I never thought

that I'd end up working here, because what is there for

women to do on a farm? I went off to study for a BSc in

Human Molecular Biology but later switched to a BSc in

Plant Health and Ecology after I did an internship with a

plant pathologist overseas. It opened my mind to new

possibilities for being a woman in agriculture. I later worked

on the farm during holidays. I learned the fundamentals

of the business from the ground up. I've been working

full time on the farm for five years, and proudly run the

production side of the business which entails planning,

research and development, and everything in between

that leads up to the final product.

WHAT DOES GREENWAY FARMS DO?

What started off as a small vegetable farm, which later

specialized in carrot production, has now seen new

opportunity to further expand the business. Instead of

throwing away the broken or forked carrots that aren't up

to sale standard, we made our famous Rugani juice. We

have now expanded to pineapple and beetroot juice, and

yummy combinations like carrot and pineapple as well as

carrot and ginger.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR AWARD?

One of my suppliers nominated me to be a candidate for

the AGRI Gauteng Young Farmer of the Year for 2019. The

judging criteria are quite broad and the judges want to see

how involved the farmer is in their business. They visited

the farm to see what we do here and how I influence the

business on all levels. When I was nominated, I was very

sceptical about the competition because I don't do this

job for the recognition, but I realised that it gives me the

platform to be noticed as a role-player in this industry. I

didn't expect to win, especially because I'm a woman. I am

the first woman to win this award and I think it really shifts

the paradigm about women in agriculture because it's not

an industry for men only any more. I'm proud that I can be

an example that women can achieve anything they put

their minds to. The national round of this competition is yet

to take place and I am looking forward to it.

WHAT CHALLENGES DO WOMEN IN THIS

INDUSTRY FACE?

There has always been a stereotype that there isn’t

anything a woman can do on a farm. Even though the

business was fast growing, and the doors were always

open for opportunity for us to join the family business,

there was no real clear understanding or direction, as to

where me as a women could add value to the business.

This however has changed. It’s a male-dominated

industry and it's very difficult to be seen as a role-player

in this industry if you're a woman. It’s a lot of hard work

to be successful. Luckily, these stereotypes are changing,

together with the paradigm shift that women can be

excellent farmers.

WHAT IS YOUR INVOLVEMENT WITH

THE COMMUNITY?

Besides providing local produce and employing locals, I

think that our success story also inspires and motivates

the community. The business started off on a 20 hectare

farm and now we have 3 500 hectares. We try to send out a

message that anything is possible if you're prepared to take

risks, work hard and walk roads that are not often walked.

We also empower our employees, giving them the chance

to get upskilled and to provide better lives for their families,

and at the end of the day, it lifts up the whole community.

BEING PART OF A FAMILY BUSINESS?

When we say that it's a family business we really mean it.

My father has five daughters and a son, so it was inevitable

that at least one of his daughters would end up in the

family business. One of my sisters and my brother have

also joined me on the farm. My loving husband is the

marketing and export manager of the business, so we get

to work together a lot. For me, family equals Greenway

Farms – I can't separate the one from the other because we

are Greenway Farms.

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD FOR YOU?

While the business is growing, my family is also growing.

My husband and I are expecting our first child and I'm very

excited about it because I am always working towards

leaving a legacy for the next generation.

Summer blooms

We’ve put together our top garden tasks and tips for the month.

Best for patios …

imagine having deliciously

fragrant and pickable sweet

basil at your fingertips. Basil

‘Dolce Fresca’ is a patio basil

that grows perfectly in a pot,

keeps its compact bushy shape

and doesn’t get leggy, like

garden varieties tend to do.

Plants grow 30 to 36cm high,

with a high leaf yield. This basil

has won several horticultural

awards, including the All-

American Selections vegetable

category for its sweet, tender

leaves and ornamental

shape. Use the leaves for

pesto, with pasta and in any

Mediterranean-inspired dish.

A great patio edible. Details:

www.ballstraathof.co.za.

Garden tasks:

• Sow quick-growing annuals like alyssum, dwarf

marigolds, nasturtiums, portulaca, and California poppy.

• Lift and divide irises, water agapanthus if the weather is

hot and dry and fertilise roses, cannas, dahlias

and hydrangeas.

• For heat-resistant bedding colour, plant vinca,

Angelonia and bedding salvia in sunny beds and

begonias in semi-shade.

• Water outdoor container plants and hanging baskets

once a day and feed twice a month. If the sun is

becoming too harsh, move containers into a position

where they receive afternoon shade.

November is a peak time for pests. Watch out for

lily borer (black and yellow stripes) on your clivia and

amaryllis, and spray with Margaret Roberts Biological

Caterpillar Insecticide. Protect roses, tomatoes,

and sweet peppers with Ludwig’s Insect Spray,

which is organic.

• Succession sowing of most summer vegetables can

be continued until the end of this month.

winter in warmer areas. Growing 60 to 80cm high and wide, it is a good filler

for beds or as a feature in a large container. Plants are frost-hardy, performing

best in full sun in fertile well-drained soil. Like all salvia, they need moderate

watering and the soil can dry out between waterings. For strong growth, cut

back in spring, fertilise and water well. Details: www.ballstraathof.co.za.

Fly camping ...

a safari for the adventurous


Walking through big five country and sleeping out in the wild

So you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary. A little more adventurous.

Something special. And as we so often do (boast, boast), we’ve done the hard work for

you and found something spectacular for you to experience. An authentic wilderness

adventure, where you can experience the beauty of the bush on foot and sleep out in

the wild. A fly camping safari experience is the latest activity offered at Samara Private

Game Reserve in the Great Karoo – arguably one of the most extraordinary areas of

South Africa.

Taking its name from the original safari days when explorers set up camp in big game

country with little more than a fly sheet protecting them from the elements, Samara’s

fly camping activity remains true to these origins.

WIth a maximum of six guests, your adventure begins with a guided bush walk

through Big Five territory ... fret not ... the rangers are armed and they, and the trackers,

are hugely experienced. Come dusk, you’ll arrive at your private camp, where your

tents have already been set up (thank heavens ... imagine having to do that yourself

after a long day walking in the bush!), and the fire ready to be lit. You’ll have (massively

welcome, we’re sure) sundowners followed by a traditional South Africa braai – think

boerewors, roosterbrood and grilled pineapple – cooked by the ranger and tracker

team. You’ll spend the evening sitting round the campfire, sharing safari stories and

listening to the nightly chorus of jackals, nightingales and the occasional lion roar,

before retreating to bed. The next morning, you can continue your walk or drive back

to the lodge.

This fly camping safari is only available from October to May (excluding December 15

to January 10) and is limited to guests who’ve booked a minimum three-night stay

in one of Samara’s lodges. A R7 000 a night camping surcharge applies, although this

charge is included in the cost if guests book a five-night conservation package. Prices

include the services of a fully armed ranger and tracker. You do need to be 16 or older.
